Having missed the previous two years I was excited to get in on this year! Gorgeous weather and good times. This was my first four-John hike ( 9L, jlp, JR1, jj3 ).

Headed up the right side of the ravine for a change of pace. Didn't seem better or worse, a few wobbly boulders.

Pam's grand New Years ceremony took place on the highest peak, 2968, which is the most western peak. She started a new group keister photo tradition. Partially sponsored in part by JR1's hide-the-peak-register which is an outdoor version of Twister. Kelly's New Years resolution might be to one-up the cooookie monster due to some damn good morsels by Pam!

After the ceremony I followed Bob & Barrett east to 2961 then north to 2931. The main west peak is my favorite, nicest views and no hwy/lake noise. The nicest view in my opinion is in the mid valley looking over to the Four Peaks. From the third peak Bob picked a direct route back to start. It wasn't shorts friendly but nothing horrible.

Schulhauser's Pub & Grill was packed and the service was great! We saw one or two bald eagles flying overhead leaving the grill. Great to see everyone and honored to meet an 11 & 12 year member!
